Police in Nairobi have arrested three suspects accused of defrauding a couple of Ksh.2 million in Westlands area.

The suspects; Titus Fedha, Haji Shariff and Suleiman Mzava (Tanzanian), had allegedly promised Mr & Mrs. Harbanas Sign Sanata that they would help them expel evil spirits in one of their properties, which they (couple) intended to sell.

The three suspects in the company of two others still at large are said to have visited the compound in Westlands area with a briefcase containing a snake and other witchcraft paraphanelia.

The couple had been convinced that part of the Ksh.2 million was meant to buy special oil to burn the snake.

According to police, upon receiving the money, the suspects disappeared prompting the victims to report the matter.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) raided a house belonging to Haji Shariff, one of the suspects, where they recovered a suitcase containing witchcraft paraphanelia.

The three are set to be charged with obtaining money by false pretence.
